By Catalina Castravet

A 10 minute homemade caramel sauce no thermometer required, foolproof, only 3 ingredients, one pot and 10 minutes of stirring its all it takes.

Making sauces at home can be fun and budget friendly. Like my other Homemade Blueberry Sauce, this one is perfect to go on any desserts. In addition, if you are a huge caramel lover like I am, I suggest using it to make various other desserts. My other popular once are Salted Caramel Apple Madeleines and Marshmallow Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake.

Caramel Sauce No Thermometer Needed

This Caramel Sauce requires No Thermometer, and it is ready in under 10 minutes. Similarly, the sauce is delicious, and easily made at home. Now, once you make this caramel sauce you will never ever go to store bought again. Because, its creamy, easy to make, sweet and so good on everything. Also, this sauce is not for stuffing brownies, you would need a thicker version. However, this caramel sauce will be perfect to put on ice cream, coffee, shakes, cakes and well, basically everything you want to pour it on, this is the recipe you need.

I like how quickly this comes together, start to finish its 10 minutes, maybe less, it requires stirring, but thanks God no fancy kitchen gadgets or thermometers are involved. Also, it can be stored for up to two weeks in a jar in the fridge, and can be heated in the microwave if it solidifies in the fridge.

Caramel sauce is one of my favorites to make, Katalina! I actually end up eating most of it with just a spoon. It's just SO good! I love how easy this is to whip up! What a perfect recipe for a Monday!

Homemade caramel sauce is my weakness, and I could definitely see myself just eating this liquid gold with a SPOON. Love that it's so non-fussy and doesn't even require a candy thermometer!

No-churn ice cream is the best and craziest invention. It always blows my mind how easy it is. And frees up your time to make delicious sauces like this one! I still have some bourbon caramel in the fridge and I'm thinking it's going to become a permanent fixture...

OMG you said bourbon, I know what I am adding next time to mine!

I love this, it must be SO much better than the store-bought variety! Love that no thermometer is needed, too, I always get frustrated when there are candy thermometers involved.

Ciao Florentina

I haven't made caramel in ages. I love the simplicity of this recipe and who doesn't love caramel ? Problem is I'd pour it all over ice cream and eat a bucket of it !nom-nom

Does the caramel sauce stay liquid after it cools, or does it solidify as many homemade sauces do? I am a huge fan of making things from scratch... That's how I grew up, plus it tastes better, and to me I like to know whats im my food and be able to pronounce the names of all the ingredients.

Reply

Hi Mary, the caramel stays quiet liquid, it never fully solidifies, it still has the consistency of a sauce, and if you want it more liquid you can heat it up for 10-15 seconds in the microwave. Also, I am so with you on the made from scratch alternative, thats exactly how I grew up to and I prefer to know what went into my food :) thanks for reading!
